    Here's my portable one for my eventual wedding, disassembles amd flat packs for
    storage/transport. Holds five kegs plus tank. Well need a lot of ice to stay cold, but is
    insulated.That is excellent! I...

    Hoping to brew this up this weekend, but my LHBS doesn't carry wyeast products, so I need to
    substitute. My guess from the selection is either WL Trappist or WL Abbey liquid yeast. Is one
    better than ...

    I like the pear idea!How about halving them, giving em a few minutes on the grill to caramelize
    a bit, let cool, mush em up and rack onto them?That sounds like a winner. I think gas would be
    the way t...

    I was thinking racking onto crushed or dried cherries, or maybe raspberries or strawberries.
    I'd need to do a bit more research on how much would be suitable for the flavor to come through
    without ove...

    ... you consider buying your oats for oatmeal at the LHBS store because it's about half the
    price of store bought oats.Seriously? I get 2lbs of oatmeal at the grocery store for about $
    1.50. You're lo...

  • Posted in thread: Over pitched / quick fermentation. on 08-12-2014 at 07:59 PM
    Not in a way that would be detrimental. At the homebrew scale it is HIGHLY unlikely that you
    could over pitch in anything. Perhaps if you made a 1 gallon test batch and used a one gallon
    starter with ...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast, alcohol content, and bottling? on 08-12-2014 at 07:28 PM
    Not sure what yeast you used, but a couple times a year I brew some BIG beers in the 10.5-12%
    range. I haven't added yeast to the bottling bucket yet and I bottle those beers. So far I've
    not had any ...

    That sucks. A lot. Have you got a hole in the keg or in beer line?

    Personally ive never worried about it. Never had a problem. The bushings are again oil
    impregnated bronze. Unless crushing macro brewery sized batches regularly there is almost no
    way we on a homebrew...
